Abstract
The Point Characterization Instrumentation System (PCIS) is an instrumented 28 ft. fifth wheel trailer designed to obtain in situ measurements of microscale obscurant properties, such as the mass extinction coefficient, of battlefield smokes. PCIS is being developed for the Project Manager of Smoke/Obscurants for a variety of field tests. This paper describes PCIS as it will be configured during the PG-16 field trials to be conducted in France in September 1982 and Norway in February 1983. Examples of data resulting from using PCIS in a partially completed state during Smoke Week IV of November 1981 are discussed.
